Shadows of Happiness

by Deidra aged 16

Consider a broken heart without
A fairy-tale. Without scars from the past.
Without roaring whispers of deep regret.
Life’s dark touch gives nightmares to fleeting souls.
No fading promises nor memories
Of spinning with no balance. No falling
For the shy eyes of a silent stranger.
Hopeless dreamers dance under starry nights,
Waiting for stardust to open their eyes.
But like fallen petals their light will fade.
Leaving one with no memory of light.
Reminded by the steady flow of time.
Darkness follows everything bright.
Broken hearts are caused by happy endings.
